12oz bottle into a FW Imperial nonic glass
Notes from 03/09/14
Thanks to Mid for this extra
A: Dark brown body with nice clarity showing off some garnet hues when held up in to the light. Thick oatmeal colored whip forms over top displaying some pretty stellar hang time. Eventually subsiding to a ring where some light stick holds to the glass.
S: Lots of coffee roast with a bit of cocoa nib in the nose. Some earthy hops. Has a light brown sugar sweetness to it. Good dose of roasted beans up front however which is nice.
T: Flavors develop more chocolaty notes with some spent coffee and a modest level of earthy bitterness. A touch of charred sugars with more green hops and some spice on the backend. Lots of cocoa powder goodness here though. No alcohol flavors ever reveal. A lighter porter that is easy to drink.
M: The body is bit thin with a smoothened texture from the carbonation. Very dry and clean at the finish.
D: A nice table beer. Easily sessionable with nice chocolate and coffee roast flavors. A touch too thin for my liking although what you do have is a well crafted and balanced Porter.
